MIG & Flux Welders

MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding is a process that uses a continuous solid wire electrode fed through a welding gun, along with a shielding gas to protect the weld area from atmospheric contamination and oxidation. The wire electrode melts and fuses with the base metal to form the weld.

MIG welders are versatile and can be used for welding various metals like steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and copper alloys. They are commonly used in automotive, construction, fabrication, and manufacturing industries for applications such as sheet metal fabrication, structural welding, and pipe welding.

Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) is similar to MIG welding, but instead of using a shielding gas, a hollow electrode wire is filled with flux material. When the electrode wire is heated, the flux material generates a shielding gas, protecting the weld from atmospheric contamination.

Flux welders are suitable for outdoor welding applications or in environments with drafts that may disperse shielding gases. They are often used in construction, shipbuilding, and pipeline welding for welding thick materials and for welding in windy conditions.

What You Need To Know When Buying A MIG Welder

When somebody is looking to do their own auto body work, a MIG welder is one of the first tools they should look at owning. MIG welding is very easy to learn and a MIG welder is a must-have tool for auto restoration or any type of metal fab, which is probably why you’re considering purchasing a MIG.

If you’re not sure what exactly you need, we’re going to help you select the right machine for your job. We offer a range of MIG welders for all budgets, including the MIG 90, MIG 140, MIG 180, and MIG 250, which are designed specifically for this type of welding. Also available from Eastwood are multi-process welding machines that will allow you to not only MIG weld, but also give you the option of stick and TIG welding.

Flux Welders

If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to gas shield welding, shop at Eastwood for a flux welder that helps you do the job right. Flux-cored arc welding was created for those who need maximum portability and simplicity on their projects. The process is similar to MIG welding but uses a tubular flux wire and typically does not require a shielding gas. The results is a semi-automatic welding process that is fast and easy to learn, making it ideal for times where you’re more worried about a good weld than having it look pretty.

The Best Flux Core Welders

Eastwood R&D has developed a variety of flux welders for DIY auto enthusiasts. The 90-Amp Flux Core Welder is an economical unit that provides MIG-welding functionality for mild steel on all your indoor or outdoor projects. The Eastwood MIG 140 Welder, MIG 180 and MIG 250 also accepts flux core wire as do all of our multi-process welders.

Our flux welders cost a fraction of what the same reliability and features would run from other welder manufacturers. Make sure to pick up flux core wire, driver rollers and other accessories that all come with Eastwood’s 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee.
